I'm a Winner!

The great bloggy give-away had an amazing response last week. Over 500 blogs participating. I didn't get a chance to visit all of those blogs but I tried my best to visit as many as I could (spending waaaaay too much time on here, but who cares, it was all fun!). And I didn't think for one minute that I would win anything - but I did :-)

I won a Coffee/dry mix pack from Angie at Proverbs31wwbe I can't wait for the postman to deliver it.

I've also been surfing around some fun knitting blogs this week too. I just can't get enough of anything 'knitting'. There's not enough hours in the day for me. The more time I spend on here visiting blogs and seeing what others are knitting, the less time I find for actually knitting! I don't know how these gals do it all. They blog very regularly and show great pictures of thier WIP's (work in progress) and FO's (finished objects), I just don't know how they find the time to do it all. I'm lucky if I can knit a few rows of a dishcloth.

I am wanting a challenge and have been out this weekend to buy myself some double-pointed needles. I am going to attempt to knit a pair of socks! Considering I have been knitting since the age of 8, I feel like a newbie when it comes to something like this. Well that's because I AM a newbie. My mom always knit on straight needles and I can only vaguely remember her knitting with 4 needles. It's not something I ever got her to show me. I want to take a sock class sometime in the fall (once Kristen gets back to school) but in the meantime, I thought I'd try a tutorial I found on line. I'll take pictures later this week and come back and post more about my progress here.

I just wanted to let you know that I love your blog. Your knitted items are beautiful, and your blog has gotten my knitting on again. And I feel like you about spending way too much time entering contests. I can't wait to see what you knit next.

Congrats on winning! It's always a good feeling when you get something for free. :-)

Yay for trying something new with socks. They're so much fun. If I can do it, I know you can too. Just pick a basic pattern the first time around to get yourself accustomed to knitting on such tiny needles, and you'll be fine.

Also, don't hesitate to keep trying on the sock periodically to make sure it fits.. it is a pain in the rear, but worth it in the end when you have a perfectly fitting sock!
